BroadwayWorld was there or the big opening and brings you full coverage below!
The cast of The Atmosphere of Memory includes Academy, Emmy, and Tony Award-Winner Ellen Burstyn, Max Casella ("The Sopranos," "Boardwalk Empire"), Kelley Curran (Angels in America, Henry V), David Deblinger (The Wood, Our Lady of 121st Street), Tony Award-winner John Glover (Love! Valour! Compassion!, Waiting for Godot), Charles Goforth (underneathmybed, Henry V), Paul Kandel (The Who's Tommy, One Flea Spare), Kelley Rae O'Donnell (Heal Me Television, The 24 Hour Plays), Melissa Ross (Our Lady of 121st Street, A Winter Party) and Sidney Williams (Little Flower of East Orange, Identical Same Temptation).
The design team includes David Gallo (scenic design), Emily Rebholz (costume design), Dans Sheehan (lighting design), and Brendan Connelly (sound design).
The Atmosphere of Memory opens Labyrinth's 2011/12 season and tells the story of playwright Jon Stone, who has recently found the courage to write his masterpiece: a play about his upbringing. But when his actual mother is cast to play his mother on stage and his estranged father remembers the family history differently, Jon is forced to rewrite, not only his play, but his past as well. With twists hilarious and heartbreaking, playwright Katz (Philip Roth in Khartoum, Freak) turns Williams and O'Neill on their heads by imagining a world where the boundaries between life and art, fact and fiction, are as blurry as The Atmosphere of Memory itself.
